Q.  Search Companion Starts If I Double-Click a Folder or Drive.  I believe I was previously infected. Now my system is stable. Right now, my DRIVE and FILE FOLDER & FOLDER, whenever I click on it, it goes directly to search command.

Drive icon
When I view thru FOLDER OPTIONS > FILE TYPES > ADVANCED, only the command find there's no way for me to edit nor change.

Folder Icon
For this, it has the open command, but i could not execute by opening the folder properly.

Is there a register key that I could replace or anything else I could do, other than reformatting my windows or go for System Restore? What will it happen if I opt for System Restore? All my files gone?
I hope I have been very clear about my problem.

Thanks

 

A.  This is an addition to two fixes that I had listed in another newsletter.  Any of the four fixes may work for you.  This has been a big headache for several people in the past few weeks.

 

If you double-click a drive or folder, Search Companion may start and the drive or folder may not open. 'Search' will be the top most in the right-click context menu for a folder or drive. This usually happens after adding/modifying the File Folder or Drive entries via the Folder Options File Types dialog, as an attempt to add additional context menu items such as Command Prompt here, Print Directory for folders or drives.

 

Quick Fix:

Click Start, Run and type this command:

regsvr32 /i shell32.dll

 

Manual registry fix

 

To fix the problem manually, open Registry Editor and navigate to:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ Directory \ shell

-and-

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ Drive \ shell

 

1. In the right-pane, locate and click the (Default) value

2. Click Modify on the Edit menu

3. Type the word none in the Value data box, and then click OK

4. Exit Registry Editor.
